Edwin – Rebirth, Peace
A difficult cycle is coming to an end and relief is here. A time of blissful renewal and rebirth. A personal sense of deep peace and tranquility.
The first thing I hear and see when I pull this card is someone sighing in contentment and lounging in a bubble bath. Sound nice? If so, this is your month. July will be a lot quieter on all fronts. Some of the "noise" you've been experiencing physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually will have the volume turned down. You'll start to relax into the new and deeper understanding of yourself that you've been cultivating thus far in the year. Any nagging thoughts and remarks about what was or what should be are able to move into their newly freed up space of what is and what can be. It's time to start recognizing your potential and capability. You're now moving in the right direction by pulling it from the inside out instead of chasing it from the outside in.
Looking to others to understand, define, or validate you is a thing of the past. This month you're happy to lounge and bask in the glow of your inner light and self-knowing. Spirit encourages you to have fun this month as you explore one of the most curious and fascinating creatures on the planet...you. Comparison and competition will leave you feeling empty, confidence and creativity are the names of the game moving forward. If you've been feeling artsy or creative this will be a supportive month to get writing, drawing, or back in touch with whatever medium speaks to you. You'll also feel pulled to enjoy and receive from the creative energy of others via discovering new music, taking in a play or show, or trying a new community activity. The new, new, new is what July heralds.
You're facing some big shadows this year. And this card reminds you that on the other side of a shadow is new light! Are you remembering to pat yourself on the back and acknowledge your courage and bravery for your willingness to do the work? This month marks a turning point with a journey you've been on, you'll recognize and feel that you're now closer to the finish than the start. This feeling of success will keep you motivated and encouraged to stay strong and present while allowing this year's journey to take its time, transform you, and come full circle. This month you're not meant to have the whole picture revealed just yet but you are leaning into more and more clarity which will keep you calm and centered in trust.
Suggestions for this month: Get outside and star gaze. Rest and catch up on sleep. Unplug and spend less time on your phone and technology. Exercise and eat well, enjoying healthy self-care but without pressure, restriction, or force. If you usually run, consider a bit more walking. The more leisurely pace at play will lend itself to low maintenance endeavors that feel good as opposed to demanding. It's a nice month for romantic new beginnings. Your heart center will be more relaxed and open to a new ideal. At the very least you'll start honouring and connecting with not only what you truly want but what you truly need.
Spirit shows me starting a pilot light. Areas of your life where you've lost faith are ready to reignite. Past disappointments will release and give way to new hope and beginnings. Set an intention of finding your faith in any area of your life you feel you may have lost it. Because this month is your chance to hit reset and begin again.
On the first of every month, I pull a card from my Faye Oracle Cards, which feature characters from my book, A Tale of Faye. I share what the card and character represent, as well as any additional insights my guides bring through so that you can be aware of the energy and make the most of the month. I also share any energy themes as I feel guided.
